Kaldi's Coffee Roasting
|Roaster Location:||St. Louis, Missouri|
|Coffee Origin:||Africa, Latin America.|
|Review Date:||February 2009|
Blind Assessment: Richly pungent aroma with notes of gently charred wood, floral-toned fruit, hints of citrus and butter. The roasty notes recede in the cup, allowing the delicate floral and orange top notes and cocoa and dry berry to move forward. Gentle acidity, light body but silky mouthfeel. Some flavor carries into a short, slightly rough finish.
Notes: Available in a 16-ounce valve bag at $11.89. A blend of light- and dark-roasted coffees from Africa and Latin America. Founded in 1994, Kaldi's Coffee is a quality-oriented small-batch roaster with several cafes throughout Missouri. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An interesting combination of floral and citrus delicacy and backgrounded pungent roastiness.
